Evoking Scotland’s rich heritage from wild warriors to the Scottish enlightenment.

Robert Burns (25 January 1759 – 21 July 1796), also known as Rabbie Burns, the Bard of Ayrshire and various other names, was a Scottish poet and lyricist. He is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland and is celebrated worldwide,

Robert Burns was a pioneer of the Romantic movement. His poem 'Auld Lang Syne' is often sung at Hogmanay.

The Bust

When – 1899
Where – Glasgow, Scotland

This part of the Glasgow School of art was built in the second phase of construction from 1907-1909. The Glasgow School of Art is the masterwork of the architect, Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The West Library Tower is part of the main school. The building is a celebrated landmark building of international importance being far ahead of its time and of great influence on the development of modern architecture.

The tower contains the lecture theatre below and the double-floored library above which is now undergoing extensive restoration due to the fire earlier this year. It overlooks Glasgow’s famous Sauchiehall Street. The building shows many characteristics of the Art Nouveau style that spread throughout Europe and influenced many American architects.

The design draws on the past Scottish baronial architecture whilst looking to the future. At this time the shipyards of Glasgow were producing over a third of world tonnage. From the skill base of the shipyards, Mackintosh drew on the culture of craftsmen across the city.

This Timothy Richards scale façade model would make a beautiful statement gift for any student or alumni of the great School of Art to be placed in any studio, office or study.

Rutland Square – Edinburgh
This Scots style classic terrace was typical of many new townhouses built in Edinburgh during the 1860’s. More restrained and austere than its southern cousins it nevertheless is very handsome with its cast iron balcony and column door posts. A small model of character when light is cast across the face the balcony fretwork casts shadows across the façade

By the 1760’s the Adam brothers, of whom the best known is Robert, were dominating the architecture of Britain. They specialised in a mix of classical styles. The effect of liberally mixing Roman marbled interiors with Greek, Egyptian, Indian and Chinese additions released architecture from the sober approaches of previous architects.

The wealthy eagerly accepted the new fashionable style with a number of new houses being built and others being refurbished. One example of these was Hopetoun House that overlooks the large estuary of the Firth outside Edinburgh. The bookend shows a detail from one of the wings, part of the Adam reshaping of this large country house.

This set of detailed scale Timothy Richards bookends featuring the famous Queen's Cross Church would make a statement on any mantelpiece, bookshelf or display cabinet for any art lover.

Made of red sandstone, the church has a tapering tower. The naive resembles an upturned boat with Noah’s raven perched aloft. As with the Glasgow School of Art stained glass plays an important role and again Japanese influence is evident within the decoration. When visiting the church Tim was struck by the elegance of these doors, every detail worked out and controlled. In the model red stained glass has been placed behind the two windows allowing light to shine from behind.

This detailed scale Timothy Richards doorway model of this famous Church would make a statement on any mantelpiece, bookshelf or display cabinet for any Mackintosh fan.

Having completed the models of the west library tower and north front Tim returned to the Glasgow School of Art and wished to make a larger version of this particular doorway. It has a unique character and shows Mackintosh at his most inventive.

The key stone is pushed back whilst a rolling curve breaks up into shapes filling the design with rhythm and power. It is both monumental and highly sensitive, both ancient and modern. It is a pure and brilliant design. This was the first time Tim has taken a master and shot blasted the result giving the texture of old red sandstone of which the original was made.
